Onedismus (on-e-dis’-mus): Reproaching someone for being impious or ungrateful.


I made breakfast for you again—the 19 millionth time. Eggs, pancakes, bacon, toast & jam, coffee—for the nineteen millionth time, and all you do is gobble it down with slurping and piggy snorting sounds. I bet if somebody saved your life you’d walk away without a word. You’re such an ungrateful snake. I hate you more than I hate our racist neighbor and I hate him so much I’d actually like to kill him—with poison or a blunt instrument to the back of the head.

You don’t respect me, you’ve never respected me since you turned 15 and started smoking and hanging with thugs who are nearly all in jail. So, here’s the bottom line: start showing me some respect and some gratitude or I’m going to kill you. See this tire iron? It’s a blunt instrument. It will put a crack in the back of your head and your brains will squirt out on the floor. From now on, you will say thank-you and you will wash the dishes. If you can’t do this, and you stay here anyway, you’ll become a corpse. You’re free to leave and find somebody else to burden with your character defects.

You act like God is a pimp, there to procure whatever you desire. Your prayers are like telling Santa what you want for Christmas. You’re too self-absorbed to ever be considered a person of faith. Stop calling yourself Godly. Reflect and reconsider your life’s trajectory.

I can’t believe it! I gave you $500,000,000.00 to get a start in life and you don’t even thank me. It’s like you think you were entitled, just like all those freeloaders on Social Security. I should’ve sold you when you were born. Some moron offered us $50.00, but your mother didn’t think it was enough. We were asking for $75.00 and your mother was adamant. That’s too bad, but now I’m stuck with you. Just go do something with the money, like buy run down shit holes and rent them to people you can push around, like old ladies, cripples, and illegal aliens.

Now, get the hell out of here and do something cruel with your life you little S.O.B. Hey! Maybe some day you’ll be President. Ha ha ha!

I gave you more than half of our peanuts. You just gobble them up. You don’t even look at me. You just keep stuffing them into your mouth. 

Can’t you at least say “Thank-you”? I would appreciate it. If you don’t   thank me I’m going home to my mother. She would thank me.

built a real-estate empire.” “I” is your favorite word. What about “We?” We never hear “We.” Is it because “We” don’t matter?

It is obvious–so obvious–that you could not have done it alone! Every once in awhile you acknowledge your children or your wife,  but they’re just an extension of you!

If you want my vote, I need to hear you start saying “We” when you refer to “your” accomplishments. Show some gratitude around the circle of others who have supported you, advised you, guided you and  made you a success–give US a place in the limelight. WE are tired of living in your shadow.

You seem to think you’re the world’s greatest living autodidact! You credit yourself for everything you allegedly know. Have you ever heard of, or used, the words “gratitude” or “grateful” with anybody but your own reflection in a mirror? Whenever you talk about the role of other people in your life and the influence they’ve exerted, you blame them as though they’ve all screwed you up somehow!

The quality of your life would change in a positive way if you could LEARN to recognize the benefits you’ve derived from people who care about you, have nurtured you, and yes, who have taught you!

Who’s the first person you’re going to thank?

Don’t ask me what I’ve done for you lately!  Instead, you better ask what you’ve done for me! How about just saying thanks for once?
